Planet Earth
Set your Tivos, change your schedule, stop what you're doing, and plan on watching The Planet Earth.

Premiering Sunday, March 25th at 8:00 PM on the Discovery Channel, and for the next 11 Sunday nights, it's an epic mini series that deserves your valuable time. If you have kids, this is must watch TV. If you're an adult - it's eye candy. The photography will blow you away. It might actually be worth getting HDTV just for this series - it's that good.

This series has been five years in the making, AND Sigourney Weaver is the narrator.

You're welcome.

    Does it mention how God created the Earth in 6 days and how Jesus is our Lord and Saviour? If not, I ain't watchin' it.

    ACW: Yeah, I'm a heretic. Maybe this series will broaden some narrow minds. Besides, you can argue all you want about how the planet was created, but no one can argue about its beauty and grandeur.

    Thanks for the comic relief ;-)

    ACW was kidding?

    I didn't know it was going to be on. I will have to mention it to Hubby as I'm sure he'll be keenly interested.

    Thanks for the heads up! :)

    PS - I kid you not. The word verification choice I've been given is "airho". Does that have to do with the mile-high club?

    I can second your enthusiasm as the aseries has been shown here on the BBc already. Here it was narrated by David Attenborough - a major wildlife filmmaker - which I guess will give his narration the edge (he has actually been to the places he is talking about) but that is de minimis.

    You will spend all your time going "Oh my god! Oh my god!" and then rush out and join Greenpeace.

    Catch the shots of Lake Nyasa with huge plumes of smoke risig off the surface, hundreds of metres high. The it is explained that they are in fact swarms of tiny flies: billions of them. I mean like WOW!
